Great food, always served with smiles. We like take home pasole, chips and guac, salsa, tortillas, and tamales.

Remember you're not going for atmosphere! Focus on the food which is fresh, authentic and delicious. Service can be slow but worth the wait. Beef fajitas served piping hot and packed with flavor. Sopapillas are thin and fried just right. Located in what looks like a deserted strip mall, don't question whether or not you should go. This place is... More

What a nice little hole in the wall! Great food at a great price. Don't look for fancy drinks or pretty decorative surroundings. Instead just some great food. Had the chille Relleno, absolutely awesome. The flour tortillas were the best ever. I'll go back anytime I'm in the area.

The food was hot and pretty fast in coming out. The homemade tortillas were good as we're the chips. The salsas are ok, nothing to write home about. The carnitas, flautas and pozole were very good. They had a number of Mexican drinks including horchata, which was good. The place was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

We had huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos when visiting Farmington on our way to camp in Colorado. The red and green chile sauces were very good as was the food. The service was friendly and efficient although it did take a while for our food to arrive. We liked it so much we went back the next morning to get... More

8 of us met for our monthly get together. Everyone's meal was fabulous and the service was great. I had the posole and it was excellent.

My husband and I stopped by after reading the reviews. My husband ordered the enchilada plate and I ordered the Huevos Rancho plate and we also ordered two sopas. The food was disappointing. A lot of beans and rice, but very little of any thing else. While eating our food we asked twice for the sopas. After finishing our food... More

Nice casual atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff and clean. Someone was always cleaning. You can see into the huge kitchen and the floor is spotless. Chips and tortillas made and sold on site. Some of the best refried beans I have ever had. The rice was fluffy and flavorful. The chicken enchaladas used roasted, not the usual boiled meat and the... More

Good food, fast service, casual dining. I will definitely be back. I had the carna asada burrito and sopapias and they were both very good.

This is a local dive. Very authentic Mexican food. Best Tamales around. Buy them by the dozen or by the plate. The enchiladas are fantastic. Very small place, limited seating, most are take out orders. Dona Maria's is a must visit.
